I've been lucky enough to sell artwork to the Omni Hotel, opening in Louisville Kentucky this coming May. In addition, they've asked for me to reinvent two flags I made by hand in the fall 2011. In Vogue We Trust has been reinvented to fit a smaller scale to contrast, and compliment my first ever Great Garrison Flag. Both of these are 6.5" x 13", instead of the 36'' x 72'' life-size scale that I normally work with. This tiny size proved to be difficult due to the intricate measurements, patterns and embroidery on each flag.
Most people are confused and are unsure of what I mean when I say, "I'm making flags," which is understandable. It's a long process that initials a lot of math and attention. From making color samples so that you can replicate colors, to making the dye into a paste, and then taping, masking, and embroidering the material that is to be the final piece, and even all that doesn't cover it. So, I decided to make a video to show the process of making these pieces. I hope you enjoy!
